Zuma to give Bafana pep talk

2009-11-17 11:56

Cape Town - South African president Jacob Zuma plans to make a visit to Bafana Bafana on Tuesday afternoon for a pep talk before the evening’s international against Jamaica.

The country’s leader is also to watch the match at the Free State Stadium, which kicks off at 20:30.

South African Football Association officials said a meeting with the team depended on what time Zuma arrives in the Free State capital.

“It is still not 100% settled because of his schedule,” said team manager Sipho Nkumane.

Zuma’s insistence on attending is likely to reinforce government concern over the form of the team as the 2010 World Cup finals approach.

Zuma has watched several Bafana Bafana matches since taking power last year, including regular attendance during the FIFA Confederation Cup in June.
